Kevin Porter Jr.’s NBA career is surely over. It’s only a matter of time before NBA Commissioner Adam Silver drops the hammer on the Houston Rockets guard.
And while society is built on second chances, Porter has had six or seven chances.
Enough is enough.
Porter has had two teams give up on his talent at this point as the juice isn’t worth the squeeze. The Rockets are willing to part with future assets just to get rid of him and no one in their right mind would blame them.
The Rockets acquired him knowing he had a checkered past, as they thought they could trade him and help him become a model citizen. And considering everything they gave up to acquire him (the second-round pick in the top 55 probably won’t convey), it made sense.
In the end, the Rockets got burned, as Porter faces charges of second-degree assault, third-degree assault and second-degree strangulation, all of which are felonies.
Whichever team trades for the struggling guard will release him immediately afterward, giving the respective teams a chance to unload their worst deals in exchange for draft compensation. This could be attractive, as it is much better than being forced to resign and stretch said players and eat into guaranteed money in the long run.
The San Antonio Spurs should seriously consider such a move.
